Monday 5.2.11

Today the news rang out Osama Bin Laden has been killed.  Many Americans felt like justice had been done on behalf of all the people that were killed on 9/11.  God created man in his image and he does not take that lightly.  Many people have lost loved ones due to someone murdering that person for no reason. So how do feel when you see these numbers?  Another number to consider is more than 3,051 children lost their parents. 

In total 3,497 people died in the attacks on 11 September 2001.
  • 2,735 civilians in the World Trade Center died
  • 87 passengers and crew members aboard American Airlines Flight 11 that hit the North Tower

  • 36 passengers and crew aboard United Flight 93, who gave their lives stopping four hijackers over Pennsylvania
  • 64 passengers and crew aboard American Airlines Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon, killing them and 125 people in the building.
